Magical Entities Are Not For Sale
by Chris Turner

genre: fantasy, short story, young adult

It’s a cute story about a nine year-old who learns the importance of responsibility, honesty, and self-restraint while she works at a candy-store whose proprietor gives away magical “entities” to deserving patrons.

My only problem with it was it’s level of language. What nine year-old uses words like “pretentious” “prudent” and “perplexity?”  Am I so out of tune with children now that those words are in their vocabulary or was the book written to challenge young readers?

This just wasn’t for me.

3 stars out of 5.
